Furness at 50

In July 2019, Furness College turned 50 years old, and we held a celebratory weekend alongside our sister colleges, Fylde and County, who also share our anniversary. On Saturday 6th July there were tours of all three colleges, including accommodation, trips to the wind turbine and in the evening there was a pre-drinks reception with an address from our former Vice-Chancellor, Professor Mark E. Smith followed by a gala dinner in the Private Dining Rooms.

In Furness we are always happy to welcome our former students back or hear how you are getting on. We hope you take away many fond memories and want to maintain your association with us.

The college hosts a memorial day every year where teams of former students play the current students at football and pool, as well as other events you can join in with. The Alumni Office also run a full programme of events through the year that appeal to a wide range of interests and you as soon as you graduate from Lancaster, you can gain access to a range of benefits and services, such as careers advice for life.
